Piccolo, a lightweight library for building ZUIs, announced

Ben Bederson sent a message to the jazz-announce list today announcing Piccolo, a lightweight library for building interactive 2D graphical applications (with or without zooming). It’s based on Jazz and was written by Jesse Grosjean, with support from Ben.

Lately, I’ve been looking for a way to endulge the programming geek in me. I’ve done a pretty good job of hiding it these last few years (most of the people I work with at Stanford don’t even know I used to be a programmer). This toolkit looks like it might be a nice, digestable, way to start playing around in the oh-so-interesting world of ZUI’s.
